Biology CornerAnother site with many lesson plans, worksheets and activities focusing on anatomy, biology and physics. The section on cells features lab activities, study guides, and interactive lessons.

Cells Are UsFree middle-school curriculum with five instructional units. More emphasis is placed on cell functions, (rather than structure), and includes activities.

Cells AliveInteractive illustrations of animal, plant and bacteria cells. View the site's BioCams to see cells growing. Downloadable worksheets are also available.

The brand-new TED-Ed website allows educators to "use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube." Each video on the TED-Ed site is tagged to a curriculum subject, and is accompanied by supplementary materials like multiple choice quizzes, open-ended questions, and sites for delving deeper. Great site to check out.

Untamed Science

Here's a website put together by a group of scientists/filmmakers/educators that offers free science lesson plans for K - 12, along with a variety of videos covering biology, physics, chemistry and technology. You can watch a brief video at Untamed Science ​to get a sense of who they are. 

Another interesting aspect of the site is that it provides lessons for kids who  have an interest in wildlife filmmaking. They address different levels with "Getting Started" and "Advanced" sections, and also offer a short "Gear Guide" for those looking to purchase their own equipment. Great site to explore.
